[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Darren Dunstan – Face Up, Face Down (All Yu-Gi-Ou Fans Please Unite)

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

Today’s song of the day is shamelessly one of my favourites from the original U.S. Yu-Gi-Ou soundtrack (Music To Duel By). Hell, it’s even sung by the voice actor of Maximillion Pegasus himself!

Face Up, Face Down might as well be the epitome of YuGiOu battle anthems because… well, who doesn’t suddenly get the urge to duel hearing this song? (This one, and of course, the U.S. Theme Song… and.. Your Move! and… World of YuGiOh! and-and-and… fuck. There’s a bunch, but this one is definitely among the creepier titles. MARK MY WORDS. xD)

Here’s Face Up, Face Down, everyone!

LYRICS:

Welcome all my honored guests
to the ultimate duel with the best of the best
At my invitation you’ve come to compete
for the honor of suffering the final defeat

Isn’t it grand what i’ve managed to do
by kidnapping those closest to you
i’ve taken their souls to lay on the line
in a winner take all duel for all time

[Bridge]
Let’s play the game
i’m sure you all know how,
but watch yoursleves, my foolish friends
you’re all in my world now

[Chorus]
Face up, face down
attack or defend
face up, face down
this battle’s to the end
face up, face down
stay on guard
face up, face down
play your strongest card

Final arena awaits us all
I built it myself, it’s just down the hall
I wish this day hadn’t come so fast
you see, i truly wanted your pain to last

[Chorus]
Face up, face down
attack or defend
face up, face down
this battle’s to the end
face up, face down
stay on guard
face up, face down
play your strongest card

all your cunning strategies
all the tricks you’ve tried
look like merely childs play
to my millenium eye
ha ha ha ha, your turn, yugi-boy

what’s wrong now, you look so sad
losing your soul dosen’t feel that bad
those you love have told me so
and soon my friends, you too will know

[Bridge]
Let’s play the game
i’m sure you all know how,
but watch yoursleves, my foolish friends
you’re all in my world now

[Chorus]
Face up, face down
attack or defend
face up, face down
this battle’s to the end
face up, face down
stay on guard
face up, face down
play your strongest card
(repeat chorus to fade)
